Is this the most absurd book that Dr. Seuss has ever written? I haven't read all of his books, yet, so I can't be totally sure, but damned it might just be! Just like the title suggests, there are no limits to what one can think, and Seuss expertly illuminates a bevy of whimsically impossible thoughts through his charmingly rhymed language and carefully constructed images. Some of the wording is a touch awkward and he lets the craziness of the ideas overpower any need for linguistic structure, but I think that the illustrations more than make up for any shortcomings. We are treated to a whole new range of imaginary creatures and landscapes, all depicted by Seuss' trademark style of clashingly bright colours. Considering how strong the images are in terms of inspiration, I wonder how many children over the years have used them as the basis to create a wholy new story - eschewing Seuss' narration entirely in favour of new thinks!

This book is for ages 4-8. It teaches children of the many ways they can think. It allows them to expand their thinking. It as well incorporates a lot of color which makes them connect their thoughts to something. It's written in a poetry format which is easier for children to read through since it all rhymes.

More on the easier level of books for younger age groups. Kids may not be able to recognize/sound out all words, however they will get the majority of them.

Typical Dr. Seuss fare. It wasn't one of my favourites as a kid, but I liked it okay.

I have always loved Dr. Seuss, his books are so fun. The nonsense words can really test fluency. ( )
